Open Lab Hours for all EFL and ESL Students
Now offering online and in-person tutoring
The English for Academic Purposes (EAP) department continues to offer this specialized tutoring/lab space for all students who do not speak US English as their first language. This lab is staffed by instructors in the EAP department who are trained in teaching English to speakers of other languages. Tutoring is free, and students have unlimited time in the in-person lab and no appointment is required.
For online tutoring, appointments are recommended, but after the first appointment, students will be added to the EAP Tutoring Lab MS Team app and then will be able to drop in during the open online hours for tutoring. However, those with appointments will take priority over drop-ins, so advanced appointments are recommended. For appointments, you can choose to meet online through MS Teams or Zoom. Please use the appointment scheduler linked below to make an appointment for online tutoring.
Tutors will help students understand their online assignments, projects, and essays. In addition, students can receive help with presentations, technology, or general questions. All students whose first language is not US English are welcome in the lab.
If you are struggling with understanding Sakai, MS Word, PowerPoint, Excel, or other tech tools, then please make an appointment for a tech tutoring appointment (see below for those times and how to sign up).

Did you forget to make an appointment? That's okay! Check the days and times listed, and during the open tutoring hours, you can check with the tutors to see if they have immediate openings.
